City-based writer Antara Pandit has compiled an E-book book titled ‘Life during COVID-19’, which is an anthology of experiences from people across the globe.
‘Life during COVID-19’ is an anthology of experiences - a tribute to the unsung hero in every one of us. “All the raw stories are the real voices of people from across cultures and generations. They have opened their hearts to give us a glimpse into their lives and thoughts, battling and embracing the new life order brought about by the pandemic. There are stories of pregnancy, family, personal growth, duty & sacrifice, business, survival, kindness & compassion, healthcare & well-being, and much more. The authors have talked about their personal and professional experiences. Baring one’s soul to the world is not an easy task, but I think the entire writing process has been a necessary one for many people,” she asserts.
Every individual has dealt with the impact of COVID19 in their way, and each story in the book has its takeaway for the readers. “The youngest author is 8-years-old! I aimed to give people a platform (including kids) to put their experiences out there so they can deal with the magnitude of what is happening. So, in short, every story I received went into the book. There have been tremendous learnings for me on the entire publishing process. Compiling this book has been extremely cathartic for me,” Antara says.
